The dog with the longest ears is called Mr. Jeffries, who is a Basset Hound from West Sussex, England. His ears measured 11.5 inches (29.2 cm) in 2002. He is also the grandson of the famous dog from the Hush Puppies shoe ads, which made the Basset Hound famous. His grandad used to hold the record, but when he died Mr. Jeffries took over. Owner Phil Jeffries says the ears are so long that he often stands on them, trips over them or drags them in his food by accident.

World's Most Developed Dog

The Norwegian Lundehund (lunde: puffin and hund: dog ; also known as: Norsk Lundehund, Norwegian Puffin Dog) is a small dog breed originating from Norway and originally bred for hunting puffins. The Lundehund is the world’s most developed dog, as it has 6 toes and can close its ears! It has a great range of motion in its joints, allowing it to fit into narrow passages. The head can be bent backwards along the dog’s own spine, and the forelegs can turn to the side at a 90-degree angle to its body, much like human arms. Its pricked, upright ears can be sealed nearly shut by folding them forward or backward. But its most interesting trait is its Polydactylism (the occurrence of more than the usual numbers of fingers or toes)!

Feet of a Lundehund

Instead of the normal four toes per foot, the Lundehund has six toes, all fully formed, jointed and muscled. Its flexibility and extra toes were ideal for hunting the birds in their inaccessible nesting locations on cliffs and in caves. Interest for the breed declined when new methods for hunting puffins were invented and a dog tax was created.

Most domestic dogs are able to reach speeds of 19 miles per hour (30.5kms per hour), when running flat out. The greyhound, the king of canine speedsters, is capable of reaching speeds of up to 40 miles per hour (64kms per hour)! The greyhound is not only the fastest dog but second only to the Cheetah as the world’s fastest animal. The longest jump was also by a greyhound named Bang. He jumped 30 feet (9.14 meters) while chasing a hare at Brecon Lodge, Glouchestershire, England in 1849. He cleared a 4 foot 6 inch ( 1.37 meters ) tall gate and landed on a hard road, damaging his pastern bone.

On 23 June 2007,Elwood, a two-year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix, was crowned the world’s ugliest dog. Elwood, dark coloured and hairless – save for a mohawk-like puff of white fur on his head – is often referred to as Yoda or ET, for his resemblance to those famous science fiction characters. He was placed second last year. Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue. Beyond the regal title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $US1000 reward for his owner.

The best tracker was recorded in 1925, and the record is still held by the Doberman Pinscher named “Sauer”, trained by Detective-Sergeant Herbert Kruger. Sauer tracked a stock thief 100 miles (161 km) across the vast Great Karroo, in South Africa by scent alone. Did you know that a man named Louis Doberman, a German tax-collector, first bred the Doberman breed in the late 1860s to protect him while he worked?

Passion for dog photography


July 12, 2010
Sandor Fagyal

This journey of mine began when I started restoring photos about 5 years ago. I found joy in repairing memories that appeared beyond hope at first glance. I eventually expanded my restoration business to offer photography services as well, quickly learning that dog photography is my ultimate passion.

My heart is especially happy when I am documenting our furry friends and their innocent spirit, unconditional love and unique personalities. I have been an animal lover my entire life, growing up with Lhasa Apso’s throughout my childhood. I now have a Miniature Schnauzer, Remington, who is my furry best friend and daily inspiration. I am also an avid supporter of animal rescue organizations and no-kill shelters and will offer my photography services complimentary to any local organization who needs assistance photographing their animals up for adoption.

My hope is that I can portray each dogs true soul for the world to see. Even if my photos just speak to one person and leads them to adopt, it is worth every ounce of my time. I am a firm believer that every moment in life should be captured and preserved regardless of how insignificant it may seem, because someday these irreplaceable memories will be deeply treasured.

The regulations of each country regarding the transportation of live animals varies greatly. However, our 10 years experience of shipping dogs to over 80 countries makes us your best option to have your dog shipped. We fully comply with the regulations of each destination and make our dog's well-being the number one priority at all times. Our dogs get food and water during their travel and their crates are cleaned in an animal holding facility. They travel in a climate controlled room on the airplane, which insures that they are effected by the journey as little as possible.

Free Microchip

At Euro Puppy, every dog comes with an ISO compatible microchip ($30 value) at no extra cost. Microchipping is now an international standard and is no more painful than a vaccination. The microchip can normally be detected between the shoulder blades of the dog. In the US, AVID chips are used and AVID chip readers will not detect the ISO compatible microchips. Please make sure your reader can read ISO compatible chips.
